Hi. This is a graph of the data from the buoy which I obtained from your link and dumped into Excel.
These are confusing graphs because 1 day is compacted into a very short space and then the current day is spread out. Note the very small 'nick' in
the graph at around 10:45 today? This can also be seen on the graphs on

I don't think any of those would have affected this buoy so long after the event and thus with that small nick i have to conclude a data drop out has
triggered the alarm. This happens quite frequently.
The interpretation of the webicorder is completely wrong and that wave has nothing to do with magma! It is a malfunction as most of the LISS recorders
have been off line. That looks to me like a calibration signal. but equally it is probably an error.
In the light of the higher solar activity at present problems like this are not surprising.
